Jonathan, Not Buhari, Improved Power Supply – Former Minister of Power, Nebo

Must read

The former Minister of Power, Ven. Chinedu Ostiadimma Nebo has condemned claims by praise singers that the current administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari improved power supply.

He made this disclosure during a speech at Ikole Ekiti, Ekit State, on Saturday, October 10, 2015 where he was conferred with an honorary chieftaincy title of Atayese of Egbeoba kingdom by the Elekole, Oba Ajibade Adewumi Fasiku.

Nebo maintained that the feat was rather achieved by immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan.

His words: “Some said it was Buhari’s body language that brought the improvement, but I didn’t know what they meant. You can see that these saboteurs have stopped regular bursting of the gas pipes that powered the electricity since President Buhari came on board. Some people did not want Jonathan to succeed.

“Some of these people were doing this great disservice because they did not like President Jonathan. The regular supply is Jonathan’s labour. The present administration has not added any value to the sector and Nigerians must appreciate this.

“President Buhari will do wonders if he strengthens embedded generation and built more infrastructure for transmission of power.

“He should also change the threshold for licensing from one megawatt to five megawatts because the former has no incentive for investors and I believe Nigeria will leapfrog from 4,000 megawatts to something more appreciable, if this is done.”
